I Miss My Bird Feeders

12 Feb

I really do miss feeding the birds and seeing all the different ones I can attract.  That would be Sky’s fault since he thinks feeders are really just bait for him to catch the birds.

They’ll have to just live out in the barn.

Maybe some day the dog will grow up and I can have my feeders in the yard again.  Yeah, right…

A Walk in Pasture

2 Dec

Now that the cows have gone and the goats are shut on the front pasture, there’s not much to look at out in the Back Forty.  Although, I still think it’s beautiful.

The neighbor has cows on the corn field behind us.

I did see this.  I’m not sure what kind of den it is.  I’m okay with fox.  I will have a fit if it’s coyote.  I don’t know how to tell the difference.

There were a ton of doves that took off when I got close.

Not much out there right now.

American Kestrel

15 Oct

I am so excited!  I got to photograph an American kestrel for the first time!

I’ve seen one or two on the farm before, but I’ve never had my camera with me.

This one was quite cooperative.

They are such a pretty little falcon.
